Things to Remember


“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” – John 17:17


“But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” – Romans 8:25 “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” – John 17:17


Do not seek revenge: It can be tempting to seek revenge against those who have wronged us, but the Bible advises against this. Romans 12:17-19 says, “Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.”

Uncovering the Connection Between Technology and Architecture: Reflections from a CIVO Kubernetes Conference

Going to a technology conference is always an exciting opportunity to learn about the latest advancements in your field, and the CIVO Kubernetes conference was no exception. With a focus on the open-source container orchestration system, attendees had the chance to deepen their understanding of the technology and its impact on various industries, including Architecture.

The highlight of the conference was the keynote speech by none other than Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Inc. Wozniak’s talk was not just a walk down memory lane, but a fascinating reflection on how his early love for mathematics and electronics shaped his journey as a tech pioneer. He spoke about how his childhood curiosity and passion for technology laid the foundation for his future success, and how those early experiences still drive his work today.

Wozniak emphasized that no one can ever know for sure what drives what in life, but he gives credit to his love for math and technology for creating the drive that made him who he is today. He shared his thoughts on the importance of nurturing children’s curiosity and creativity, and how this can lead to a lifetime of innovation and growth. It also brings some of the happiest moments of his life, which he attributed to walking his daughter down the aisle.

For architects and other design professionals, Wozniak’s keynote was a reminder of the important role technology plays in shaping our world. As we continue to push the boundaries of what is possible with design, it’s essential to understand the latest advancements in technology and how they can be applied to architecture.

One of the main takeaways from the conference was the growing impact of tech (Kubernetes) on the Architecture world. With its ability to automate the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications, Kubernetes has the potential to streamline the design process and make it easier for architects to bring their visions to life, with a passionate team, the right tech, and a solid culture.

Whether you’re a tech expert or just starting to explore the field, the conference offered a wealth of insights and inspiration to help drive your work forward. And as Wozniak showed us, the love for technology and mathematics can be the driving force behind innovation and growth.

New Lighting and Wall Finish for Patio

Today marks the beginning of a new project for me, as I embark on the journey of designing and building a brand new patio. I have always had a passion for home improvement and outdoor living spaces, and I am excited to put my skills and creativity to the test.

My design for this patio includes a number of luxurious features, such as a sleek canopy to provide shade on sunny days, a sturdy structure to withstand any weather, and linear lights to create a warm and inviting atmosphere at night. I am also incorporating an outdoor kitchen, complete with all the amenities necessary to host the ultimate backyard barbecue.

I have been working on the 3-D design of the patio, and I am pleased with how it is coming together. I have attached a photo of the smooth stucco finish and the linear lights that will add a touch of elegance to the space. I can already envision the many memories that will be made on this patio.

While the patio is not quite finished yet, I am already thinking about the next steps. Once it is completed, I plan to sit around a gas fire pit with my cigars and enjoy the beautiful view. The thought of hosting a dinner party with friends and family, or simply relaxing with a book and a glass of wine on a lazy Sunday afternoon, fills me with excitement.

I am looking forward to the challenges and rewards that this project will bring, and I am excited to see the final result. I will be sure to keep this journal updated with my progress, and I look forward to sharing the finished product with all of you.

Creating a Unique Dragon Fruit Holder: A Garden DIY Project

Today was a productive day in the garden. I decided to create a holder for a dragon fruit plant that will be planted in the back garden for my wife. She has been wanting to add some tropical fruits to our garden and dragon fruit seemed like a perfect fit.

I started by designing the holder in 3-D using a computer program. It was a bit challenging as it was my first time using the software, but I was able to figure it out with some trial and error. The holder will have a unique design, featuring a spiral shape that will allow the dragon fruit to grow and climb up the holder.

After completing the design, I exported it to the 3-D printer. Watching the printer work was fascinating, seeing the design come to life piece by piece. It took a few hours for the holder to be fully printed, but it was worth the wait. The final product looked exactly how I imagined it would, and I couldn’t wait to put it to use.

Next, I prepared a 4×4 post and dug a hole for it in the planter box. I inserted the post into the hole and then securely attached the 3-D printed holder to the post. The holder looked great, and I knew it would be the perfect support for the dragon fruit plant.

Finally, I planted the dragon fruit in the planter box and watered it. It was now ready for its new home and I couldn’t wait to see it grow and produce delicious fruit. I know my wife will be thrilled when she sees it, and I’m happy to have been able to make her dream a reality.

Overall, it was a fun and rewarding experience creating the holder and I am looking forward to seeing the dragon fruit plant thrive in its new home. I am also excited to use the 3-D printer for more projects in the future.

Mercedes GLC 300 iPad Pro 12.9” Mount

As a car enthusiast, I know how important it is to have a well-organized and functional dashboard. That’s why I’m excited to share my latest project: creating a custom 3D printed mount for my car’s existing screen.

One of the challenges of adding new accessories to your car is finding a way to integrate them seamlessly into the existing dashboard. Removing and replacing stock items can be time-consuming and costly, not to mention the risk of damaging your vehicle. That’s why I decided to design a mount that fits over the existing screen, without requiring any removal or modification of the stock items.

To create my mount, I used 3D modeling software to design a custom shape and size that fits my specific needs and preferences. The process was surprisingly easy and straightforward, and within a few hours, I had a fully-fledged 3D model ready to print.

The actual printing process took a little longer, as I had to wait for the printer to finish each layer. But the end result was worth the wait – a sleek, customized mount that fits my car’s screen perfectly and holds it securely in place.

One of the benefits of 3D printing is the ability to create customized solutions that fit your specific needs and preferences. Whether you’re a car enthusiast looking to add new accessories or a designer looking to bring your creations to life, 3D printing offers endless possibilities.

I’m excited to share my 3D printed mount with others and hope that it inspires others to try their hand at 3D printing. Once all measurements are confirmed, I’ll be sure to upload the design to share with the community. Stay tuned!
